SUR LES QUAIS is a gourmet fine food brand founded by people who have a passion for travel and beautiful, delicious food. It all began in 1999 in Paris, world capital of gastronomy and veritable culinary crossroads.
SUR LES QUAIS fine food store was set up by Paul Vautrin, who is passionate about good food. It was the first of its kind bringing together rare and precious fine foods under one roof, products that were impossible to find in France.
Since it opened, it has always sold a selection of olive oils on tap in authentic bottles and the most exceptional fresh products from the finest cuisines around the world. Food-lovers travel right across Paris to sample the olive pastes (tapenades)!
In 2015, François Bergé meets Paul Vautrin and driven by the same values and desire to be a part of the gourmet adventure, he joins SUR LES QUAIS.
Today the original store still offers a unique selection of oils, spices and other exceptional fine foods and has become a much-appreciated taste 'laboratory' for restaurant owners and foodies in search of delicious and healthy products.
SUR LES QUAIS is still a purveyor of the very finest and rarest gourmet products to enhance your cooking, artisan condiments, rare spice blends, oils from unspoiled terroirs.
We carefully select each product we discover on our travels abroad or from the French terroirs and offer you expert tips and advice so that you too can cook like a professional and be inspired by the world's best cuisine.
SUR LES QUAIS fine foods, unanimously acclaimed by food lovers, are available in the most prestigious outlets in France and around the world.
Epicureans and mad about cooking, we want to showcase the finest cuisine the world has to offer and provide our customers with the best spices, condiments and oils to enhance their cooking. Gourmet food around the world is alive, rich and exciting. When you experience it you experience unique terroirs, ancient recipes from extraordinarily different cultures.
It's like going on a journey and meeting the men and women who design the food that gives our palate such pleasure!
